Expert Tips

Crush a couple of butterscotch candies and sprinkle on top of the cider for a pretty--and yummy--garnish.

Serve a delicious nonalcoholic spiced cider by preparing as directed but omitting the butter, brown sugar and rum.

For the best flavor in this spiced drink, be sure to use butter instead of margarine or spread products.
